Dams, Development and DownStream Communities
The book brings together the results of wide ranging, multidisciplinary research that addresses all the key components and implications of dam re-operation. Starting with the perceptions and concerns of the downstream communities, the book presents four scenarios for re-operation, the implications of each scenario for power generation and people’s livelihoods, flow requirements for fisheries and biodiversity, as well as socio-economic implications. Finally, the studies explore also institutional issues for managing re-operation of the dams, as well as alternative approaches for restoring livelihoods of downstream communities.
